Working Towards an Environmentally
Sustainable Future for Arizona



Arizona Green Business Program

Local First Arizona knows that locally owned businesses, like yours, are leading the charge toward environmental sustainability. That’s why we’ve launched the Arizona Green Business program, a consulting and certification process that delivers strategies to reduce your company’s impact and give your business the recognition it deserves.

This program is suitable for businesses just starting to make changes, as well as those that are looking to take their sustainability efforts to the next level. Focusing on seven key areas of sustainability, the program provides your business with a custom toolkit full of best practices and ideas that can positively affect your bottom line.

We are currently accepting locally owned businesses in our pilot program located in the Tempe and Phoenix areas that are an office, brick-and-mortar retail or a restaurant/café. 

The 7 Key Areas of Sustainability:

  • Energy Consumption

  • Water Conservation

  • Waste Diversion

  • Wastewater & Stormwater Practices

  • Pollution Prevention

  • Transportation Efficiency

  • General Sustainability in the Workplace
